I wonder how the penalty phase will go. I know that for a death penalty case they do not include people on the jury who say they could not vote for death due to their opposition to capital punishment. Can Judy Clarke muster enough sympathy for this defendant? I doubt it.
FWIW, I'm opposed to the death penalty and happy that Massachusetts got rid of it, but if I did support it this guy would be a prime candidate. Too bad he didn't off himself. I don't feel sympathy for him, just sorrow that he couldn't see beyond his own hate, and that pissed away the opportunities he had and did so much harm to others.
